C2S #12...

Friday

up on time!...walked the boys then drove as usual to do my walking day...

Saturday...

volunteered at parkrun (bridge marshal) before heading up to Sydney...bumped into Stu at Sutton Forest and had a quick chat...parked the car at the Ibis Budget Hotel in St Peters...left my car there and caught the train and light rail to the Convention Centre in Darling Harbour to check out the CityFit Expo...

walked back to Central via Haigh's in the QVB then caught the train to St Peters...

hung about in the room until mum & dad arrived at their hotel in Ultimo before catchin the train back in to have dinner with them...

today...up early to shower and get ready before parking my car near Sydenham Station and catching the train to Town Hall...

arrived at Starbucks to await the arrival of mum and dad...the Equality Campaign had a stand set up to encourage people to make sure they were registered to vote/had the correct address in the system...Ian Thorpe was there helping out and heaps of people got their photo taken with him...

mum and dad had a coffee before we headed over to the start...they saw more off before catching a taxi to Bondi...

it was a great day for a run...with thousands of other people!

caught up Chris G and Tracie...Dave squeezed past me to get closer to the front without noticing it was me...Thomo yelled out a hello with a wave...I spotted Pieta ahead of me up HBH...Maria passed me coming down to the hill to the 13k mark (which had the flags on the finishing side instead of the correct side!)...

I had a goal of sub-70 but knew I wasn't going to make it when it was 52:XX on the clock near the 10k so I just tried to minimise how far over I was...in the end I finished in 71:42 (rank #5 out of 12) which wasn't too bad...

I found mum and dad after grabbing a couple of waters...we had brunch at Bagels 2 Go (very popular!) before we jumped on the bus back to Bondi Junction...

they got off at Central to continue the rest of their weekend in Sydney while I hopped off at Sydenham to head home...

pulled into Campbelltown to find a couple of caches (three) and grab a late lunch before heading home...

Still a good run Bron. I'm quite happy running out of the green group - it's easier to get near the front, although I didn't bother this year. Found it hot though until the top of the hill.
